Ok, so as step 1 I decided to register and look around. Guess what? I filled out a form with info/login/etcetera, then went to login... and I can't. The system doesn't recognize me, and then I tried to reset the password, entered my email address, got a message that says that an email has been sent... no email. Hello? Help?

Hehe.. well, that might be it for me & MP for now :)

Lev, thanks for doing this great article and for the English version of it... I remember it was helpful to me a while back in Russian as I was lurking around your lj. Mind if I link to the english version on my site?

You don't have to process them - you only have to do that if you upload via FTP.

You should be able to see your images by first clicking on the "History" tab, then on the "View Images" link under today's date. If there's no link, or some of your images are missing, that means they don't match 123's images size specifications.

Nope, that's not it either... there was nothing under history tab/view images and they do match size specifications... oh well... on to another attempt... persistence should pay off, right? :)

123RF / Help...?

All right, so this time I went the "java uploader " route, uploaded about 65 images (remember? last time i did the ftp over 50 images did not go through) to test the waters... now i'm logging into 123rf and I can't figure out where they are.... how do I process them???

Arrrrghhhh.... so sad, so really sad.... I mean... come on!

123RF / FTP at 123rf?
« on: December 05, 2007, 10:44 »
A little frustrated at 123rf... I almost never upload to them due to low sales, but sometimes when I am away from my computer, I let it work - I run filezilla to upload a batch or two. Well, the frustration is due to the fact that I can't figure out if there's a problem with their ftp uploads or not... Almost all of my images of a batch of 50 or so got rejected, with no explanation - and no image icon showing up as well... no email notification nothing...

First, you have to click two hundred times to navigate to "process" my ftp'd images... and then, when I was doublechecking the uploaded images, many of them (in case of this batch) did not show an image icon... well, i just assumed that they'r processing the image part of it and went on to check for keywords and to save everything for review... and now it looks like there was an ftp issue because I don't believe that all of those forty or so rejected images are rejected - again, they are already up on all other sites and selling....

Anybody, ftp issues? Is it just me? Is it worth the time and frustration?

Dreamstime.com / Submitting Fractals to DT
« on: November 15, 2007, 07:30 »
Yup, frustrated, and venting a little bit. But also want to understand if this is a new unannounced trend. I am getting really tired of these:

"This is a very well covered subject in our data base or the subject of your image is too specific. We are looking for images that exceed the technical quality and creativity of the images already online. Please take a few minutes to browse through the best selling images online (on this subject) and go deeper, play, have a more creative, more personal approach to it, also keeping in mind the technical quality of the image."

I submitted several fractals over the last few days that were not just a quick renders, but that were carefully selected and rendered overnight and then worked on in PS that were rejected for this reason. ALSO i submitted a couple of fractal designs of X-mas tree on two-three different backgrounds that give designers different choices of bg color and space. ALL rejected for this reason. And I am no longer satisfied with this standard boring (and to me, slightly offensive - "have a more creative approach, go deeper' - huh???) explanation. If DT is not taking fractal-based work any mroe they have to create a special announcement with clear explanation of what they are looking for. Some of these fractals are top sellers on other sites... and th eonly one that DT did accept become an isntant download. So, what the heck. Really frustrating...
